MANILA, Philippines—Newly appointed audit commissioner Heidi Mendoza believes she is returning to the Commission on Audit with the support of its personnel.

Mendoza said Wednesday that she had talked with CoA personnel before her appointment, and they assured her that they were behind her and her cause to do what is right.


She told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that she accepted the position of member of the commission because she could not turn her back on those who believed in her crusade.

Mendoza, who had investigated and testified on anomalies in the military, was greeted by a wave of support when she came out to disclose the shenanigans she had uncovered.


She also talked about her displeasure at the lack of support from CoA officials when she was conducting her investigation.

Some CoA officials and employees had indicated earlier they were not overjoyed to see Mendoza back at the CoA because her previous statements had tarnished the image of the agency.
